When faced with a reoccurring, negative, ‘state-of-being’, ask yourself ” What would I have to; tell myself or believe about myself, to create that circumstance?”
One’s emotions are pointers to Unconscious Belief patterns.
Without a belief one can’t produce an emotion.
Here is an Essassani technique:
When an Emotion arises, find out what you would have to believe is true about yourself in that circumstance in order to generate that feeling.
Then change that belief.
This is a great way to positively use an emotion to find and root out the underlying cause of it.
